    Show a customer the Unique ID

    Asked by mikrosha on January 21, 2016 at 09:59 AM

    I love the Unique ID widget, but I wish there was a way to return the value created by Unique ID to the customer vie the Autoresponder email - is there a way to do this?

    I am attaching both the email I get when a customer fills out the form (where I do see the Unique ID) and the one they get via autoresponder, where I wish they could see their Unique ID, either at the bottom of the table like it is in the email that I get from JotForm, or in the body of the "thank you" section.

    Thank you,

    I checked your autoresponder and it seems like you have already fixed the issue?

    I checked one of your autoresponder message and it shows that the unique ID is now showing in your emails for your users.

    When a form field value is not showing in the email, it is most probably because the field name tag is incorrect. 

    You can edit your email notifications/autoresponders under the "Emails" setting.

    From there, you can click the form field at the right panel list to make sure you are using the correct field tag.

    In your case, the correct field tag should be {psrReference}.

    If you are still having problems on this, please do let us know.
